Wash Off (series) by Yijia Li

Yijia Li ’17, MFA, has been featured on the Twin Cities PBS (TPT) Art Is... series.

Inspired by classic Chinese landscape paintings, Li uses female figures as a main subject matter in her work. The process involves using wax mixed with pigment and a heat gun to keep the mixture soluable. Li says "speed is important" in this process and likens the texture of tapping a paintbrush on hot wax to touching human skin.

Art is... is a new series that highlights local emerging artists.
